A School for Malagiri

A school for children in Nepal

How can you help?

INTO Giving is sticking up for girls and boys education in Nepal with a £5,000 (US $6,400) donation.

Situated 2,300 metres up in the Himalayas, in the remote area of Malagiri, families live in extreme poverty. Homes here are basic, constructed of rough-hewn wood, with no glazing in windows and no electricity. Until 2011, there was also no primary school: children faced a two hour walk to schooltwo hours each way.

Today, 60 children attend the local Malagiri school. INTO Giving is providing half the school’s running costs, thus supporting not only children’s education, but also nutritional meals and day care in a safe place while their parents work the land and tend crops.

Approximately 60% of Malagiri schoolchildren are girls. 

INTO Giving is supporting 60 children attending to attend the school 6 days a week, with all their meals cooked on site and all the while supervised by teachers and staff for three months.

This kind of support makes such a huge difference to our fund raising efforts. Without the school in their community, children of Malagiri would have no education and would spend their time at their family homes, many of which have no running water/electricity. Although the living conditions of the villagers is relatively poor, the running of the school provides a place where their children can develop and grow in safety with resources and ongoing care.

 

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT

The Malagiri School has faced many challenges, including the devastating earthquake in 2015 which destroyed some of the school buildings -- tents were used for many months while additional funds were raised for a repair and rebuild programme.

The school has become an important part of the community and is attended by more and more children each year, and relies 100% on charitable donations to pay for teaching and support staff, materials and to ensure that each child has a hot meal each and every day.  

INTO Giving is keeping the school running through helping provide basic costs. Please join us in supporting this project children at Malagir Your donation, regardless of size, will make a real and immediate impact.

For example:

•           £5 could pay for a week's supply of gas and electricity at the school

•           £10 could pay for a hot school meal for three children for a week

•           £30 could pay for an assistant teacher for a week
